July 3 (UPI) -- A visitor to Ireland's western Aran Islands captured video of a dolphin approaching a fisherman's boat for a belly rub.

Elaine Farrel, a nature photographer from County Kerry, Ireland, captured video Wednesday of a fisherman and a dolphin enjoying a bonding moment.


The footage shows the dolphin flip onto its back behind the fisherman's boat off the shore of Inis Oirr.

The fisherman rewards the dolphin's friendliness with a thorough belly rubbing.
